    Default Adding a funnel to a modern

    I want to get a funnel or something like it to bring balls that drop in the back around the front of the machine. I'm okay with them just dropping into a tray but don't want to have to move the machine to get behind it every time. Anyone added a funnel or anything g like this? Any suggestions greatly appreciated as I'm new to this whole pachinko ownership.

    Some people use the paint trays for rollers. As they have a built in slope and a perfect collection tray at one end.

    Hi lucky, I got into my way back machine and found this thread with some pictures for you.

    Use metal or plastic, leave it or paint it, you can add a mouse pad or similar item to deaden the sound of the balls dropping too!

    So my machine isn't lifted off the ground at all so I either need to build it up or try something fdifferent than the paint trays

    Do be cautious if you raise it up that it remains stable. You don't want it to tip over and break or hurt someone if you have children or a pet. You could fasten some 1x4 planks to the bottom for feet to keep it stable if not already done. This is very common and easy to do.
